    Right. Cricket is on the AT&T network. It’s just weird.
  2. I upgraded my phone to latest Android Version - now it shows AT&T instead of Cricket

    I have an Essential Phone and one of the great things about it is that it gets the latest Android version almost as soon as Google releases it. I upgraded it to Android 10 the other day and now it...

    I still have this. I added the fifth line when the deal was going away since it wouldn’t cost any extra and I have it as a back up line in case the need arises. I have one daughter who sometimes...

    Do you have another phone that you can test with? Put your SIM in the second phone and see if the BM indicator shows up right away. If it doesn’t, leave a VM so the indicator shows up and then see...

    You’re being hyper-specific. The OP’s question was “Is there any coverage in Jamaica?” He is asking in a Cricket forum and states that he is on the 5/$100 plan. You assume he means the Cricket...

    Before I got a dashcam, I played around with using an old phone and the AutoBoy app which is free. There is probably a paid version that gives you more features, but the free version worked just...

    You haven’t mentioned what your job and data needs are. Are you required to use data for your job? Do you have to turn on hotspot to tether your work laptop in emergencies? Are you expected to be...

    I’m not aware of the issues you mentioned, but the inability to tether is a combination of Google/Android, the OEMs and the Carriers. Google allowed the manufacturers and carriers to be able to...

    “Unlimited Data” is quite misleading but you must know the terms and conditions and not take it at face value. An “All You Can Eat” buffet is not that either. If you do enough damage, the...

    Yes. With the Cricket SIM, I’m able to make calls, SMS/MMS and use data. Hotspot even works.

    Just to recap for any newcomers...I bought a used AT&T branded phone to use on Cricket. Out of the...

    I haven’t done anything yet, so the phone is still on T-Mobile version and I just got the Nov. 1 Security Update. I think I’m going to leave it like this. I don’t use WiFi calling, VOLTE or any...

    HD Voice and WiFi Calling are not important to me. I am able to run Hotspot straight from the phone. And I was able to do so before I unlocked it from AT&T and reflashed it to T-Mobile. I’m pretty...

    Thanks to all who have answered so far. The next questions are:

    - The phone did not reprogram itself to Cricket when I popped that SIM in and restarted. Is there a way to force it? It seems the...

    Well, I don’t know if this is good or bad, but I requested an unlock from AT&T and they sent me the code. The instructions said to put in a non-AT&T SIM card so I put in an old expired T-Mobile one...

    What a pain. I wish I had asked this question before I bought the phone. So if I manage to get this phone unlocked, will that help with the updates? I suspect not since I will still have the AT&T...

    The AT&T animation plays when the phone starts. I don’t believe it is unlocked. Does this mean I won’t even get the Android security updates? Are these pushed by the AT&T or google?

    I agree with sporez. What kind of phone do you have? Does it have all of the AT&T bands? If not, the phone could be constantly hunting for a connection and using up battery
